  1. The relative abundance of bacteria in the lung microbiome was compared by using negative binomial test. Raw and adjusted p values are given. Adjustments were made for differences in age, gender and cooking location, between high and low biomass groups
  2. *denotes significant at p < 0.05. Rows are presented in descending order of relative abundance
